Reading Groups

The Short Stories of James Baldwin with Regina A. Bernard

Once a week Mondays, 6:00 pm EST - 7:30 pm EST January 22 to March 11, 2024

Online via Zoom

The ‘With Book’ option includes a copy of Going to Meet the Man at a 10% discount from our Bookstore.

As a writer, James Baldwin alters the way you read literature. As a human being, he works to alter the way you exist in the world. In this eight-session course, we will focus on single stories in Going to Meet the Man and try to understand society as James Baldwin saw it and wrote it.

Participants should read this article ahead of the first meeting. We will be discussing Going to Meet the Man by James Baldwin for the entirety of the course.

What to expect from this reading group: The structure of my course is conversational and participant-driven. There will always be prompts at the beginning of class, but the conversation is usually led by the group, and I serve as facilitator.
